Dr. Alexandrou has been a pillar of support for us and has been the primary paediatrician for both our kids . His calm and encouraging manner was very helpful especially during our first few months of being first-time parents. He is very patient and explains things thoroughly. He welcomes questions and always puts our mind at ease. He is very competent and we highly highly recommend him.

We always had excellent experiences with Dr. Alexandrou. He would always go the extra mile to understand what was wrong with our daughter and would follow-up. Also a very good human experience, for us and our daughter. Thanks for all

Dr Alexandrou has cared for my 3 young daughters from their birth. He is incredibly responsive and helpful, even on holiday and out of office hours. We can contact him via text or phone and he has shifted his schedule to accommodate our family when urgency exists. He takes all of the time we need when we are with him, and his thoroughness is exactly what a parent wants to see. We are grateful to him and his help with our growing children!

Dr Alexandrou has been our son's paediatrician since he was 3 months old. Our son had severe feeding problems at the time. Dr Alexandrou was calm, reassuring and caring and made all the right decisions to get our son back on track to health along with bringing stability and confidence to our new family. He is highly professional and experienced, which teamed with his warm and caring nature makes him an excellent paediatrician whom I would highly recommend!

Excellent doctor, very professional, helpful and knowledgeable. We couldn't ask for better care for our daughter. We were very scary when she was first diagnosed with a very rare eye condition called Coloboma but the doctor helped us to see the positives and then guided us through necessary steps.

Our daughter has been under the care of Dr Alexandrou since she was 6 weeks old. She was first taken under his care under very stressful circumstances and we couldn't have asked for anyone better to be looking after her. He is extremely caring and very considerate to the parents needs and feelings. Since leaving the Portland he has continued to care for our little girl who has just gone from strength to strength. She is now such a happy little thing and having someone as kind and caring as Dr Alexandrou seeing us through such a hard time as a first time parent made a very horrible experience manageable. We are still under his care and he continues give our daughter the best care and is always there to answer my million questions. I can't thank him enough for everything he has done for our little family!
